"An extraordinary, often hilarious novel." -- The New York Times

A revelatory tale of love gained and lost, from a master of contemporary American fiction.

Gerard sits, fully clothed, in his empty bathtub and pines for Benna. Neighbors in the same apartment building, they share a wall and Gerard listens for the sound of her toilet flushing. Gerard loves Benna. And then Benna loves Gerard. She listens to him play piano, she teaches poetry and sings at nightclubs. As their relationships ebbs and flows, through reality and imagination, Lorrie Moore paints a captivating, innovative portrait of men and women in love and not in love.

Immersive and tender, Moore writes novels just as good as her short stories. Deeply touching.
